…a new panorama.

I began “Abbeydale Streetscape” back in September. I’ve been thinking of tackling this stretch for a while, but it was quite daunting, especially as the buildings at each end are pretty huge. I’m happy with the result, and the original watercolour can be seen on sunday 11th December at Nether Edge Farmers Market. Limited edition prints will also be available.
